The Cape of Storms

 

The Cape of Storms

A beautiful, haunting song from the Japanese movie Last Quarter of the Moon that explores attachment beyond the grave and trying to find one’s way in the shadows, tossed by the raging seas…  OK the diction is not great, because Hyde  (Haido) is a Japanese singer-song writer, but it is otherwise mesmerizing, and completely captures the feeling of being in the dark night of the soul…..

So where do I sail?
A ship losing control
My cries swallowed up,
Lost in the raging sea

So where has love gone?
Will I ever reach it?
The Cape of Storms echoes the pain I feel inside

You’ll never notice
The colour of sin
Just as the storm clouds close in
It’s dark

Here in the shadows
I am pursued
Until the ends of the earth
Embraced

The ghost ship wanders far
For there is no guiding star
And this treasure has no meaning anymore

So where do I sail?
A ship losing control
My cries swallowed up,
Lost in the raging sea

So where has love gone?
Will I ever reach it?
The Cape of Storms echoes the pain I feel inside

You know completely
The taste of sin
Melting sweet in your mouth
Like chocolate

A moment of pleasure
You are fulfilled
But every dream has its time
To die

The ghost ship wanders far
For there is no guiding star
And this treasure has no meaning anymore

Will this be my fate?

So where do I sail?
A ship losing control
My cries swallowed up,
Lost in the raging sea

So where has love gone?
Will I ever reach it?
The Cape of Storms echoes the pain I feel inside
